Mold so bad you could smell it in Crawfordville Fl 32327

Wednesday, May 5th, 2021

Our Rytech technician arrived at our homeowners residence on March 10, 2021. He found visible water damage, but no elevated moisture readings. There were lots of stains on the drywall ceiling and a noticeable smell – a heavy odor of microbial (mold) growth throughout the home.

Following the Rytech protocols. we set up the recommended mold remediation equipment before starting our work in the kitchen. The affected wall cabinets were removed for treatment. Rytech cleaned the area and salvaged appliances. All appliances were cleaned and wrapped in plastic to eliminate cross contamination from the remainder of the mold remediation work to be done in the home.

The same procedures were applied to the laundry room for the washer and dryer as the ceiling in the laundry room needed to be removed, cleaned, treated and contained for mold growth too.

The dining room also required removal of the affected wall and ceiling drywall before treating cleaning and containment

The master bathroom was almost fully gutted with the removal of the vanity, tub, shower, sink and and toilet. All of this work led to opening up the wall inside the master closet, where thick mold growth was present. Unfortunately, the master closet was also fully gutted to assure the removal of all of the mold contaminants.

This mold remediation job was large and, some would consider, extreme. But, for Rytech it was another days work and easily remediated. Rytech worked seamlessly with the customer’s insurance company, Tower Hill, to ensure all parties were completely satisfied and to get the home owner one step closer to living in a healthy, mold free home.
